Rocket League Sideswipe Announced For Android & iOS (VIDEO)
Having conquered all notable video game platforms, Rocket League continues to be a popular under-the-radar game for those looking to both score goals and drive very, very fast cars. Now, it appears that the Psyonix title is finally going mobile under the new name Rocket League Sideswipe, releasing later this year for Android and iOS.
Psyonix and Epic Games have announced Rocket League Sideswipe, a completely new “standalone Rocket League experience” designed for mobile platforms. Releasing as a free-to-play game later this year, the game will sport 1v1 and 2v2 2-minute matches and feature some of the same advanced mechanics that are present in the original title. Check out the first look at alpha gameplay below:
“Rocket League Sideswipe will feature mobile controls that are easy to pick up whether you’re a master of Rocket League or a new player still learning your way around the field,” the official description of the game reads. “Plus, there are advanced mechanics, just like Rocket League, for those who want to climb the Competitive Ranks. In the garage, Rocket League Sideswipe will have robust car customization similar to Rocket League. Players can also expect an online Ranking system for competitive play. We have a lot more to reveal about the game in the coming months as we get closer to release.”
As of now, players in Australia and New Zealand can join in on a limited-time Regional Alpha test via the Google Play Store. More info on upcoming betas for additional regions is being promised in the coming months.
Rocket League Sideswipe releases for free later this year for Android & iOS.
